Hold both the sleep and home buttons untill your ipod shuts off, keep holding untill your ipod starts up and let go of the sleep button but continue to hold the home button. you can let go when a screen showing you to connect to itunes appears, you can now continue to restore your ipod in recovery mode! hope this helps

Maybe you should reset your ipod by pressing both the menu button and the power button. If this doesn't work I'm really sorry.

Ipod froze


A white screen on an iPod Touch is the sign of a generic error, meaning you won't get a specific error message. Usually when this happens the white screen won't change and the iPod is frozen on that screen. Apple Support outlines a specific series of steps to take to deal with this problem, from turning the iPod Touch off to completely reinstalling the operating system if necessary.

What the White Screen Means The white screen is a sign that a software error has occurred in the iPod Touch. Unless you received an error message first, it's usually something near the root level of the iPod's operating system that caused the iPod to cease functioning normally. Rather than shut off completely, it goes to this white screen to let you know there's been an error. Unfortunately you usually lose unsaved information when this occurs. b> Resetting b> Try turning the iPod Touch off, then on again. This is the simplest way to reset your iPod Touch. If it remains stuck on the white screen, force a reset by holding down the Sleep button (top right corner) for about 10 seconds. The screen will go dark, then the Apple logo will appear. If it turns off and doesn't turn on again, the battery may be too low. b> Restore b> If a manual reset doesn't work and the screen remains stuck on a white screen, you'll need to restore the iPod to reinstall its operating system. Plug your iPod, via its charger cable, into your computer. Open iTunes and click on your iPod, then the "Restore" button on the main screen. b> Problematic Apps b> If you consistently receive a white screen while using a particular app, the app may be faulty or installed incorrectly. Try re-syncing the app to your iPod Touch and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, you may need to delete the app to avoid the white screen problem.

Ipod has locked up with a blank grey screen


how old is the battery it might need to be replaced

Charge the iPod


If your iPod touch suddenly goes blank while you are using it, the culprit could be a low battery.

Prior to the screen blanking you may see a low battery indicator.

If the screen is completely blank, try plugging the iPod touch into a power source and letting it fully charge before attempting to use it again.


Restart the iPod


If you've got a white or gray screen, try to restart the iPod.

Sometimes a simple restart will solve the problem that initially caused the white or gray screen, and the iPod will work as expected once you have turned it off and on.


Reset the iPod
Resetting the iPod Touch goes a step further than just restarting, and it is a good option if you've charged the iPod and restarted and you're still seeing a blank, white or gray screen. Press on the "Sleep" and "Home" buttons simultaneously for at least ten seconds before releasing the buttons. At this point, you should see the logo or a battery icon, if the phone needs to be charged.


Restore the iPod


If nothing else has worked to remedy the malfunctioning screen on your iPod touch, try restoring the device. Connect it to your computer and open iTunes, then click on "Restore" which is found under "Summary." Be sure to back up your files when prompted, because the restore will change all of the settings on your device back to the factory default.


If even this does not work, you almost certainly have a hardware issue, and will have to take the device to an Apple store for examination and possible replacement.


hope this helps

Ipod touch will not turn on


Thank for contacting Fixya, I will be glad to assist you.

What you can do, in order to resolve this issue, is start by resetting your iPod Touch
(Note: this does not remove any settings, data or media you have installed in your device)
• To perform a hard reset, press and hold your Sleep and Home Menu buttons for approximately 10 seconds.
• Once your screen goes black, release both keys. (If you see a white Apple logo before you release the keys you have held the keys to long and will need to start the reset process once again)
• The next screens you should see after the black screen, is the Apple logo screen followed by the main screen.

Let me know if this helps.

Regards,

My ipod touch wont turn on, it shows the little pple symbol on the screen, then flashes white, blacks out, and the apple appears again. I've pressed all the buttons to try to get it to work, but it keeps...


try holding the menu button and the power button for about 20 secs. this will cause it reset, if this method doesn't work, then hold down the menu button, connect it to a PC then hold down the power button, if you have Itunes installed on your computer, it will alert you that it detects an Ipod in recovery mode, basically after that it'll attempt to fix your problem, and it will be able to turn on again.

It's most likely a broken LCD. You can use a ipod repair guide that will show you how to replace the screen step by step, or you can go to the ipod repair nyc.
